What is Medicare?
Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people age 65 and over, as well as for some people under age 65 with certain disabilities. Since 1965, it has helped millions of Americans pay for the health care services they need.
You most likely have already paid into the program through Social Security taxes.
Because everyone’s needs are different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to Medicare. Preparing yourself with the right information is important, and one of the best ways to navigate the process. We have prepared this overview for you so that you have options to consider.
